Castle of Najac★★★☆☆
The castle was built in 1253 by the villagers on the orders of Alphonse de Poitiers, brother of Saint Louis, on the site of an older castle. Possession of this castle, built 200 meters over the Aveyron River, was key to control of the region.
The castle has a world record with its 6.80 metre high archeres (a thin aperture for archers), such a size being designed to allow use by three archers at the same time. A secret corridor, hidden within the walls, links the Romanesque tower to the chapel of the keep.
